The North Beach neighborhood is San Francisco's version of Little Italy and is home to many Italian restaurants in the city.
One excellent Italian restaurant in North Beach is the aptly named North Beach Restaurant. It's an institution in the Bay area having opened its doors in 1970.
North Beach Restaurant specializes in Tuscan cuisine. Food we had was authentic and very traditional.
Sotto Mare, a few blocks down North Beach Restaurant, on the other hand, is the go to place for seafood.
Eating at Sotto Mare feels like going home to your nonna's cooking. Staff is warm and friendly and they serve good old comfort food.
|Crab Cocktail Salad|
|Boston Clam Chowder|
|Linguine with Seafood|
|Fettucine with Smoked Salmon|
Between the two, I prefer Sotto Mare more but I'm not saying that North Beach Restaurant is not as good. North Beach Restaurant is a good place to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions while Sotto Mare suits my preference of a laid back dining experience.
